The objective of this workshop is to raise awareness in the Queen’s community about the steps that need to be put in place to ensure that relevant community groups, agencies, students, academic mentors and administrative personnel are prepared to address the distinct requirements of conducting research with Indigenous community partners.

The workshop has three major components:

  1. A keynote presentation by Alex McComber, DSc (h.c.), Mohawk from Kahnawà:ke Territory who has held leadership positions in the development of academic-community research collaborations in the area of Indigenous health and is an adjunct professor in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen’s University.
  2. A panel of short presentation by students, faculty, and Indigenous community members discussing from first-hand experience the challenges and rewards of research collaboration across academic and indigenous communities, and
  3. A Talking Circle during which all participants will have an opportunity to share insights, questions, and reflections. The Talking Circle will be moderated by Janice Hill, Director of Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre.

NB: All graduate students will be credited this workshop towards their Expanding Horizons certificate
